I wondered about that too. This is from their website:

CORROSEAL IS PAINTABLE
Corroseal remains "open" to mechanical, chemical and electrical bonding with most topcoats for 30 days. Corroseal is well known as a high quality and consistent product by those who routinely deal with the painting rusted metal. Corroseal serves as the primer and bonds with oil based paint, epoxy, urethane and most other top coats.

It’ll be interesting to find out... sounds like a good plan and I’ve wondered if it was any good.... as I scrape, grind, wire wheel, sand and sand blast or soak in vinegar

I might try under coating. What do you think would be best?

Looks almost like a stand off that is sometimes used for electrical conduit, or pipe.

I have used rattle can enamel paint over coroseal with no issues.
I have also used base coat clear coat over it but not without priming first.
Latex pretty much means itís water based, not solvent based but final cured product is the same
All about being environmentally friendly as far as gasís released during curing.

While latex paint is water based, the significant difference is that it’s basically rubber and oil based top coats don’t always adhere well

The reality is that there’s no adequate solution to the kind of rust/corrosion that occurs on these metal battery trays so the corroseal may be the best choice since rubber is resistant to the effects of battery acid

I finally fixed my rack. I was dreading it because the old rack was brutal to remove. I grease up the new one, but I believe it was a little smaller in diameter. It went right in perfectly 1st try. I thought I took pictures, but I think I deleted them. That is because I am the King of putting a part on only to realize you need to put in that grease fitting before securing the steering wheel assembly to the frame. Lol. So remove and install again. Practice makes perfect.

I do have a video were you can barely see the tire turning.

Note : after watching the video pay no attention to the fuzzy slipper. My foot has been messed up for 2 weeks.

I did replace the wave washer, gasket, and the seven bolts. 3 blots held the assembly to the frame. 4 bolts closed the steering housing as seen in gasket. There was no gasket when I disassembled the steering house. That was allowing grease to ooze out.
